The Roots of Music
Our program provides music history and theory as well as instrumental instruction and ensemble performance preparation. We serve kids ages 9-14 from low-income households, and provide our students with hot meals and round-trip transportation to reduce common barriers to participation.
The Roots of Music's mission is to empower New Orleans youth through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the city's unique cultural heritage. To respond to COVID-19, Roots transitioned all programming online and sanitized and delivered instruments so our students could continue learning music during this difficult time. Money raised through the Screens for Good program will support salaries for Roots' teachers, who are professional local musicians and cannot earn money through performances at this time. Our teachers are the bedrock of our program and without them, our youth cannot receive high-quality music education.
